Voltages help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was wondering what all my voltages should be set to for my Phenom II 955. My computer doesn't set them properly itself for some reason, and has it undervolted and running at 1.6ghz

What motherboard are you using?

There is a chance that the BIOS does not fully support that chip. For Example I had a Foxconn Destroyer and the 965 C3... It read my voltage as 1.000v because it was not supported.

EDIT: Your chip should not be running at 1.6v I will have to look up the correct voltage... I am guessing 1.3ish

He's saying his chip runs at 1.6ghz not 1.6v, and as said above. Check to see if your mobo is compatible with your chip.

It's the Gigabyte Ma770-UD3, it says its compatible with AM2, AM2+ and AM3. I didn't know it went down to specific chips after that.

OOPS... Wasn't Paying close enough attention...

That motherboard will support the chip with what looks like the original BIOS so you are good there...

What CPU multiplier is the BIOS set at? And what are the other settings under the MIT section of the BIOS?
